Research Topic: My research constitutes an inquiry into the construction of the memory of the Canadian Merchant Navy following the Second World War. An emphasis will be placed on understanding how the notion of the ‘veteran’ developed and proved problematic in the period immediately following the war.  My analysis will focus on the correlation between representation and memory as well as the dynamics that affect how history is projected, constructed, and consumed in the public sphere.
